Run Rudolph Run 45 RPM (12" Single on Limited Edition Red & Black Splatter Vinyl)

Just in time for the holidays, it's the return of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards‘ 1978 rendition of Chuck Berry‘s rocking Christmas classic "Run Run Rudolph."

"Run Run Rudolph" was written by Johnny Marks and Marvin Brodie in 1958, and first recorded and released by Berry that same year. Richards' version, which was his first-ever solo single, was released in December 1978.

"To me, it's the hippest Christmas song there is," he said. "Beautiful lyrics, a beautiful, joyful feeling about it, an it tells the story, short and snappy. And what a great track, the sound of it is amazing."

The single was re-released in 2007 by iTunes, under the Mindless Records imprint. This time the song was bundled with a previously unreleased 2003 recording of "Pressure Drop" with Toots & The Maytals.

Arranged and produced by Keith Richards

The "Run Run Rudolph" lyric video follows the release in 2020 of the deluxe box-set reissue of Richards' 1991 Live at the Hollywood Palladium album, which documents a December 15, 1988, show that Keith and his solo band The X-Pensive Winos played in Los Angeles while on tour supporting his debut solo album, Talk Is Cheap.
